Conejo Community Thanksgiving 2018
Our goal is to provide Thanksgiving Day meal packages to 50 local families this year.
Many families in our community live paycheck-to-paycheck and purchasing the ingredients for a holiday meal can be a large financial burden, using a huge part of a family's monthly food budget.
Each Thanksgiving, we will be sourcing ingredient and monetary donations from the community in order to provide local families with the full ingredients to cook a complete meal for their families, in their own home.
Holiday memories often center around a meal – the warmth coming from the oven as the smells mingle in the air, culminating in sitting as a family and enjoying the time together. We would like to provide that experience for as many families as we can, for whom it would ordinarily be out of reach or strain finances.
Would you like to nominate a family?

We will respond to each request and do our best to accommodate based on donations received.
